We are all touched by it, this sadness that goes around all the time, the pain - some way or the other. At one point or another. I remind myself the trick is to really focus on a Pollyanna sort of theory, looking past the negativity. Beyond it. In spite of all the bad things in the world. Despite the horrors that lurk in the shadows and darkness of it all.
This is what comes to mind when I think of mankind living through every day, a mere sixty seventy years of existence. A mere speck in the timeline of the universe. Insignificant. Given this fact, I realize the only impact we really can have is upon each other. Benefit the human race. In whatever capacity we can, and if we can look within ourselves and give our existence meaning, then that is all that matters. Who is to judge one person's life mattered over another. Try hard to let go. Let be. Live and let live sort of thing.
